Dimensional Insight

In my experience, Dimensional Insight products are excellent. They are well suited to integrate data from multiple sources and allow for dissecting information based on dimensions defined. Once you understand the logic and the powerful functions available it is easy to use, specially if you get used to using integrated visual tools. The tunnels allow for selection of a subset of data from Diver portal and the dials are great to build markers and send files in different formats to users via email.

timeXtender

TimeXtender has worked really well with our customers who have different data sources using complex data types in large quantities requiring a DW-like solution that can consolidate all data sources at one-HUB. TimeXtender does this well, and provides automation capabilities, the ability to easily handle slowly changing dimensions, handing data lineage and data security very well. TimeXtender has the ability to be very customizable, allowing the HUB to grow as your business does. TimeXtender's customer support team is super helpful and will work with you throughout your implementation to make sure you reach success with the product. The ROI for timeXtender versus competing products (there aren't many that do what timeXtender does) shows the investment to be worthwhile for the majority of organizations in today's data-rich corporate world.

Cons

Dimensional Insight

  • Technical documentation: make it easier to find examples or functions definitions.
  • Allow more flexibility in report design, maybe allow to combine columns.
  • I know with Diver 7.0 some of the missing functionality is resolved so I won't be suggesting any other improvement until we upgrade.

  • Product Marketing: As implementers and resellers of this technology, we loved it. But, convincing clients who had not previously heard of TX/Discovery Hub was more difficult than it could have been if the company had a larger marketing force behind it.
  • Relatively New to Market: it creates a learning curve for early implementers.
  • More information should be published on timeXtender's website about product lines, including testimonials.

Navigation thru the Diver portal is simple; some users have trouble but it also depends on how the analysts build models and present the reports with quickviews selections and report layouts. I am aware of DI capability to access reports thru mobile devices but I have not experience it first hand.

Overall support is very good. In cases where is a delay I have been notified of the status of it and what DI expert team is investigating. I might not get a fix right away depending on pending releases and when my company decides to plan for the upgrade but response time is good.

I don't have direct experience with the first time DI was implemented but on subsequent upgrades there have been positive experiences with support and seamless transitions to avoid users discomfort.
